Blum resigns as coach of Grace women’s basketball

WINONA LAKE, Ind. – Scott Blum announced Tuesday that he has resigned as the head coach of Grace’s women’s basketball team.

Blum amassed 189 victories over his 14-year career at Grace and had an overall record of 189-268. The Lady Lancers achieved their first pair of 20-win seasons under Blum’s tenure, including this season’s 20-16 campaign.

“I appreciate all that Scott has invested during his time as the head women’s basketball coach at Grace,” said Grace Director of Athletics Chad Briscoe. “We are thankful for his impact on the program, campus and community. We wish him all the best with his future endeavors.”

Blum’s recruits rewrote the record books for Grace. Three of the top five scorers in program history were recruited by Blum, including the No. 1 and No. 2 career scorers.

He guided the Lady Lancers to nine NCCAA National Championships, highlighted by a third-place finish in 2011-12.

Grace will start a national coaching search immediately.
